It's true! I know that we just had our #TreeTuesday this week, but, this deserves a day of its own! So, be a sport and join in! Let's see those various specimens of trees today! Hoist them high so I can see! I think I can see one! I see a tree!
Oh, the fresh, sweet fragrance of the rain... so much like the smell of spring. Who can resist the look of those drops? Sitting on leaves, laying on branches?
They somehow make a scene look cool, standing up tall, reaching for the sky. It touches all the right spots in my brain. The one that spies something that may be a tad bit interesting. Or perhaps it is those big cannons.
And just like that, this post is over... and over again. Happy National Love a Tree Day!!! Go out and hug that tree!
So the joy may touch your soul
I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
